IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#priceData') IS NOT NULL DROP TABLE #priceData;

create table #priceData(symbol varchar(10), quote_date [datetime],close_price [decimal](6,2))

INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price) VALUES ('AAPL','20091026', 555.75)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('AAPL','20091027', 550.97)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('AAPL','20091028', 547.87)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('AAPL','20091029', 543.01)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('AAPL','20091030', 550.00)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('AAPL','20091102', 537.08)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('AAPL','20091103', 535.48)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('AAPL','20091104', 534.80)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price) VALUES ('MSFT','20091026', 555.75)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('MSFT','20091027', 550.97)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('MSFT','20091028', 547.87)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('MSFT','20091029', 543.01)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('MSFT','20091030', 523.00)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('MSFT','20091102', 537.08)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('MSFT','20091103', 535.48)
INSERT INTO #priceData (symbol, quote_date, close_price ) VALUES ('MSFT','20091104', 585.80)

CREATE CLUSTERED INDEX ix_goog on #priceData(quote_date)

SELECT *
FROM #priceData
ORDER By Symbol, quote_date

IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#CountInfo') IS NOT NULL DROP TABLE #CountInfo;





CATEGORY: Symbol

So how does one SELECT the top 5 records for AAPL and MSFT (in DATE DESC order) for each

That means 5 records for AAPL and 5 records for MSFT??

Any ideas:-)

I'd start by looking at the row_number() windowing function. This makes what you need simple, that and a CTE.

fantastic job providing the DDL and sample data!

i think you can use row_number() to get what you are after:

SELECT * FROM (
SELECT
ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY symbol ORDER BY quote_date DESC) AS RW,
#priceData.*
FROM #priceData
) MyAlias WHERe RW <=5
ORDER By Symbol, quote_date

Or a derived table like Lowell is demonstrating above.
